Definition of a shirt dress


Shirt dress

Example of a shirt dress, from Peter Som.

Cynthia Nellis
Definition: A shirt dress borrows details from a man's shirt. Some of them are: a collar, a button front or cuffed sleeves. Frequently made up in crisp fabrics like cotton, the shirt dress often has a looser fit with waist definition given by a belt. Button fronts and forgiving fit make this a flattering look for most bodies.
Pronunciation: shert-dress
